To collapse Bassinet, you will need to remove the mattress and all bedding. Next, locate the screws at the top and bottom of each side panel.
Loosen the screws until they are just loose enough that you can pry the panels away from the frame using a flathead screwdriver.
Once both panels are free, hold onto one panel and push down on the other to fold it in half. Then, re-tighten the screws so that the panel doesn’t come to unfold. Repeat these steps for the other side panel.
Finally, remove stickers or labels on the Bassinet frame and mattress before folding them up and placing them back inside the Bassinet cover.
Now your bassinet is fully collapsed and ready to be stored away or transported!
Now that you know how to collapse your bassinet, you may wonder how to store it away or transport it. Of course, if you have a lot of space, you can simply store the bassinet in its original box.
However, if you don’t have much storage space or need to take the bassinet with you on a trip, there are a few other options.
To fold the bassinet in half, wrap it in a blanket or sheet. You can also purchase a special carrying case for bassinets.
This will protect the bassinet while it’s being transported and make it easier to carry. Some parents put a bassinet frame in their car’s trunk, fold up the mattress and bedding, and place them on top of the frame.
How Do I Lower My Baby’s Bassinet?
To lower your baby’s bassinet, first, make sure that the height adjustment knob is in the locked position.
Then, holding onto the rail with one hand, use your other hand to push down on the center of the base until it releases from the upright position.
You may need to use force to get it to release. Once the base is lowered, you can then pull the bassinet away from the wall and lower it to the ground.
If you have any questions or concerns about properly lowering your baby’s bassinet, please consult your Owner’s Manual or contact our Customer Service department for assistance.
It is not uncommon for parents to experience anxiety when their baby starts to grow and become more mobile.
One of the main concerns is that the baby will climb out of the crib and get injured. While it is essential to be aware of this risk, there are precautions you can take to help minimize it.
One such precaution is lowering the bassinet so that it is closer to the ground. This makes it harder for the baby to climb out and also makes it easier for you to reach in and grab them if needed.
